A couple of your former teammates got traded from Boston to New Jersey, what was your reaction to that?

“I mean, at the end of their career, they got some good look. You know, you keep playing on a contender. As far as with (Kevin Garnett) and Paul (Pierce) I wish the best for them, you know, I got a lot of love for them, so you know I'm glad they was able, at this stage of their career, to get into another great situation to try a win the championship. As far as with Doc (Rivers,) it's kind of scary going against him in the West now, but he need to be prepared. ... We got love, but when we play each other there's no love.”

 

It going to be weird not to see those guys not in Boston green?

“Yeah, it's going to be weird, ... you know, I'm just excited to see how they gone play. You know, you got a nice starting five over there in New Jersey with Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. I mean, you look at it on paper, it's just, if they gone gel together?”

 

What about K-Mart?

“(Kevin “K-Mart” Martin,) well, we gone miss him. I thought K-Mart was a great teammate. I always say it is a business, and at the end of the day, you do have to do things to make sure that at the end of the day, you know as far financially, your family is straight and everything. So it was a blessing to have him, he was a great guy while he was here, and we just wished the best for him.”
